11-20-2013 12:38 PM
A 44-season era comes nearly full circle Saturday when the University at Albany football program travels to take on fellow CAA-newcomer Stony Brook in the final game of the 2013 season and the final game of Head Coach Bob Ford's tenure. Ford, who started a club team at the University in 1970, recorded the program's first varsity win in the 1973 season-opener against none other than Stony Brook with a 69-6 trouncing. Since that day, Ford has lead the Great Danes to 256 wins and will look to cap his career with one more against the Seawolves at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. The "Empire Clash" kicks off at 1:00 p.m.
